Classical Pianist Jeeyoon Kim Presents Album Release Concert At TSRI/ La Jolla
Classical Pianist Jeeyoon Kim will celebrate the national release of her newest album 'Over. Above. Beyond.' with a concert on Sunday, December 9, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at the Auditorium at TSRI (The Scripps Research Institute).
Jeeyoon's concert events combine dazzling technical mastery and profound musicianship with her personal commentary on stage. The 'Over. Above. Beyond.' concert will also feature a unique collaboration with newly commissioned visual art by NY based illustrator, Moonsub Shin. Each of the twelve drawings by Mr. Shin depicts a movement of Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 21, No. 1 by Johannes Brahms, nicknamed the 'philosophical variations'.
Audiences will experience a new, more engaging way of listening to a classical concert with her commentary on stage. This one-hour concert without an intermission will conclude with an after-concert reception.
"As a pianist, one of the most rewarding moments is when I feel that I have lifted someone's soul with my playing and when I feel that I am deeply connected with listeners in the very moment of sharing music. It has become clear to me that it is why I make music. Through 'Over. Above. Beyond.', my wish is to give an audience a sense of hope, lightness, and a new beginning. These are pieces that have given me a sense of joy, weightlessness, and peace. Join me for this special flight and receive what music has given to us. Together let's fly Over. Above. Beyond! -Jeeyoon
